Obituary

Victoria Rose Amato Scott, 84, of Myrtle Beach, died peacefully at home on July 16, 2017. Vickie was born at home in Ambridge, PA on August 13, 1932. She married William W. Scott, Jr. in 1955, and had two children: William W. Scott, III and Drusilla G. Scott. While tiny in physical stature, Vickie was a lady of epic proportions. She would not be pleased for her age to be known publicly, as she did not believe it relevant.  However, Vickie spent her years well and lived fully, and the entirety of her life should be known in order to celebrate the full time we were lucky to know her. Vickie was a graduate of Garfield Business School in Beaver Falls, PA. After moving with her family to Myrtle Beach in 1964, she served as president of the High Newcomers Club and was a founding member of the Myrtle Beach Woman's Club, an organization that still exists today and is devoted to volunteerism and to bettering the Myrtle Beach community. Vickie was an active member of First Presbyterian Church, which she promptly joined upon moving to Myrtle Beach. She served two terms as an Elder and sang in the Chancel Choir for over 40 years. She was also president of the choir for almost thirty years. When the choir had to sing at more than one service, Vickie’s French toast casserole was a breakfast staple. Though Vickie often wore her sweaters and pearls and was every inch a lady, she would also laugh at unseemly jokes, even if she shook her head in disapproval at the same time. In moments like these, her sense of humor and love of others was most apparent. Some of her closest loved ones often called her "Slick" - a testimony to the fun woman under the prim exterior. This sense of humor and compassion, however, didn't stop her from shushing the rest of the choir when it was time to practice, and the choir always listened - you didn't cross Vickie. In addition to her choir commitments, Vickie taught Italian cooking classes at the church and always had a full class - she was well known for her excellent cooking skills. She would share her family recipes with anyone who was interested. In addition to singing with the choir, she enjoyed a wide variety of music ranging from Sinatra to classical and opera. Vickie worked her entire life and held numerous jobs in Myrtle Beach, including working at the Thunderbird Hotel, Pam American Hotel, and LongHorn Steakhouse restaurant.  She worked with the Sands Investments Company for 25 years. After a brief retirement, she went back to work at Crescent Bank in 2004 (now CresCom Bank). Upon walking into the bank, she was the first smiling face you would see. She continued worked there until a few weeks before her death, going 'part-time' only at the very end. Vickie was always resourceful and willing to assist anyone in need. She will be greatly missed. Vickie was pre-deceased by her mother Rose Grace Amato (2000), father Anthony James Amato (1964), brother Dominic James Amato (2010) and son William Wallace Scott, III (2014). She is survived by her daughter, Dru Warmath (Lex) of Charlotte. A service to celebrate Vickie’s life will be held at the First Presbyterian Church in Myrtle Beach on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at 1:00 PM.  Visitation will be held at the McMillan-Small Funeral Home on Friday, August 4 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the First Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir, 1300 N. Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.  Condolences may be offered through McMillan-Small Funeral Home at www.msfh.net.
